About Us

We are passionate storytellers who believe everyone deserves to tell their own narrative. Share their voice. Express their truth. Their way.

There’s only one way more of us will preserve our history. Our culture, traditions, thoughts, attitudes and emotions. That is by building more storytellers who can bridge borders and defy time. And that’s what Kind Seminars aims to do.

We aim to build a community of like-minded creators who can connect and collaborate on the regular while having continuous opportunities to learn from established teachers as well as each other. Whether you’re a complete beginner to storytelling and filmmaking, or want to continue building on your experience, we hope that you find this space invigorating.

About the Instructor

Mohammed Mamdouh (Mo) is a multidisciplinary and award-winning storyteller. When he was 8 years old, Mo watched Titanic, and became a child who’s forever changed. He had an epiphany as he realized that behind the monumental, grand-scale motion picture were people who made it, and decided that this is what he wants to do when he grows up. At 16, Mo made his first short, and he’s been making films since.

With over 17 years of filmmaking experience globally and in the UAE, Mo is now a devoted storytelling and filmmaking educator. Having earned a Master of Fine Arts in Film from the Vermont College of Fine Arts in the United States, as well as acquired knowledge from some of the greatest in the industry over the years, such as James Cameron and Robert McKee, Mo became a Professor of Film and Multi-Media at the American University of Sharjah, and also been invited to speak across various universities and entities including NYU Abu Dhabi, Higher Colleges of Technology and ITP Media Group.

 

What sets Mo apart as an educator is his genuine and contagious passion that is felt in any conversation about film, any day.
